  Directions To The Grave of P.B. May
 
The May family burial ground is locate in the Green Hill Cemetery in Bedford, Indiana. The cemetery is located on 1202 18th Steet, Bedford. From the entrance, go down the hill and up the next. Take the second left and bear around. Look to your left for the Dr. Benjamin Newland plot. Then begin looking to the right. The May plot will be about three rows in. While in the cemetery, another grave of interest is that of Dr. Benjamin Newland, (Find-A-Grave) murderer of the gospel preacher, Madison Evans. Benjamin was the cousin of J.W. Newland, long-time preacher of the Christian Church in Bedford. Both were doctors in the city. Also buried in the cemetery was J.M. Mathes.

Web Editor's Note: On May 22, 2012 I visited the grave of P.B. May. It was the second day of a week's Restoration Research trip with my dear friend Tom L. Childers. May's grave was in the cemetery at Bedford. It was a very busy day as we were making our way to Indianapolis to spend the evening with our dear friend Terry J. Gardner. Special thanks to Tom for doing the driving on this trip.
